PDA 33. Bilingual Pay

A salary differential of $50.00 biweekly shall be paid incumbents or positions requiring bilingual proficiency as designated by the appointing authority and Human Resources Director.  Bilingual pay for employees carrying a caseload at least 50% of which is comprised of non-English speaking clients shall be $65.00 biweekly.  Said differential shall be prorated for employees working less than full‑time or in an unpaid leave of absence status for a portion of any given month.  Designation of positions for which bilingual proficiency is required is the sole prerogative of the County and the decision of the Human Resources Director is final.  PDA shall be notified when such designations are made.
